In the 2002 edition of JUVE's German Commercial Law Firms, Kirkland & Ellis was selected as one of the top recommended U.S. Private Equity & Venture Capital firms.
"Respected firm whose huge US practice is beginning to make itself felt in Germany. It advises with German lawyers out of the London office. Strong advantage in the German market thanks to its reputation for expertise in exit strategies and finesse in negotiations. The loyal client base has stayed with the firm for German work. Practice both buy-out and VC work, with the former dominant. Also advise in fund structuring, mostly parallel funds in Germany."
